A Thought for the Week

by John M Grimes

Another Christmas is here . . . As usual, it is a happy time of giving and joy. Renewed friendships take place. New friendships are formed. Kindness and kind thoughts are seen nearly everywhere. A feeling of love dominates the world.
Christmas is more than the giving or receiving gifts. It is more than a festive feast or glittering decorations. Christmas revives a sense of friendship and love more than any other holiday. Christmas gives us the opportunity to learn the value of concern, the joy of giving, and the happiness that comes through service.
The Christmas music and hymns which dominate the air inspire the melody of Christendom. Peculiar or not, proper or not, it is the way most people celebrate the birth of the Savior and Redeemer of mankind. With it all, we hope it is a day of spiritual renewal for you. We hope it is a day of gladness and appreciation for the gift of life itself. Merry Christmas to you all.
